I ran across a book that might be of interest to some.

It was discussed some months ago: http://www.tawbaware.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?t=2237&highlight=oreilly
O'Reilly have a book series named "Missing Manuals" where Panorama Tools is still missing: should we all send them an e-mail :?)

In case you can read French, you should not miss:

Even if you can't read French, scroll down to "Extraits du livre" and click on some of the fairly hi reso extract .pdfs. This appears to be a truly outstanding book, almost as good as GURL's web pages!

Lee Frost has a book ("Lee Frost's Panoramic Photography") which deals almost exclusively with film pano cameras and 3:1 or 2:1 panos. But many of the shots are great and the insight into composition and such is very good and very interesting.


"Assembling Panoramic Photos : A Designer's Notebook" is also very good, dealing with more of the panos that we discuss here. Though it's not a "how to" for PanoTools or it's GUIs, it does discuss many facets of the picture-taking process and the post-processing often necessary. I seem to remember that it basically dealt with 6 different types of panos, from a 1x4 to a 360-view. I don't consider it perfect for one doing multi-row panos with PT, but it's very good and contains a lot of tidbits.

I was pleased and surprised a few days ago to find the above book by Arnaud Frich in an English translation by Alan Greene on the "New Books" shelf at my local library. It seems to be a very recent publication, having a 2007 copyright date. Well worth seeking out. Digital stitching is covered only briefly (but positively) towards the end, with details of Realviz Stitcher, Autopane Pro (sic), Panavue Image Assembler, PT Gui, and Panorama Factory. No PTA, though!
